I had lap band in 2008. It was a disaster we never found my sweet spot. I lost 40 lbs but it was all me. At the gym eating better not eating out, my tool just had my healthy food get stuck and then vomit.
Had all fluid removed in 2009 due to pregnancy at my OBGYNs request and haven't had a fill since.
Please don't judge... here comes my question. I haven't even had a physical since I had my daughter a decade ago 😳 I did have some blood work in 2018 during a visit to ER. Not diabetic, no high blood pressure, slightly anemic, like my labs came back good
i want to have gastric bypass. The surgeon I'm looking at, the website says the first visit they schedule you for a " thorough medical evaluation will be performed and any appropriate tests will be ordered so the doctor can determine which procedure might be right for you "
do I just schedule with surgeon or do I get a PCP first? My insurance does not cover surgery so I will be out of pocket for it
